West Fork of Oak Creek Trail #108
Trailhead: Call of the Canyon
Length: 6 miles roundtrip
Wilderness Area: Red Rock / Secret Mountain Wilderness
Journal: "Picnic on a Rock"
**Kid Friendly Hike**
Directions to Trailhead:
From Sedona, drive north on SR 89A to just past mile marker 387 and watch for the "Call of the Canyon Day Use Area" sign on the left side of the road. (A reader reports that this should be after mile marker 385, but I have not been up there to confirm.)
UPDATE: A Red Rock Pass is now required.
From the trailhead, follow the signs and rock hop across Oak Creek. This flat trail meanders through the lush vegetation of Oak Creek Canyon, which is shady and very pretty. The canyon becomes narrow at some points, and the walls of the canyon tower hundreds of feet above you. The trail is three miles long, with 11 creek crossings, but it is possible to go all the way up to FR 231 by wading and swimming through the pools in the upper canyon (roughly a 14 mile hike).
Return the way you came.
